Turning 29 for the 30th Time
Today is my birthday. I'm 59 as of today or 29 for the 30th time. One year away from 60. How the heck did I ever get here? I sure don't feel as old as the calendar says I am. Most days I feel somewhere in my 30s. Sadly, I don't look like I'm in my 30s any more but that's OK. I've earned the wrinkles and hair the old fashioned way.
Getting older has been an interesting experience and one I really wouldn't trade for the world. Getting older has given me (us) wonderful family including great sons-in-law and beautiful granddaughters.
This is me at two (much) younger ages. The first is me at about four years old and the second is my high school graduation picture, taken the summer before I turned 17. I kind of see granddaughter Emily in my four year old picture but maybe it's my imagination.
